(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A particle has a mass of 4.032u. What is its mass in MeV/c^{2}

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

4.032u = 4.032 * 1.66*10^{-27}= 6.69*10^{-27}kg

Energy equivalent, E = mc^{2}: = (6.69*10^{-27})*(3*10^{8})^{2}= 6.02 *10^{-10}J

J→eV (divide by 1.6∗10^{-19}) )=3.76∗10^{9}eV=3760 MeV

How do I find it for MeV/c^{2}
